1. Talking about things you don't care about
2. Justifying what you want to do without needing to justify
3. Focusing on details like phone numbers and other logistics
1. Focusing on the prize (ie a date, sex, etc).
When you meet a girl, do not waste time saying "I'm attracted to you" or "I think you're attractive". In general, there is nothing wrong with that. And if you are able to say it in such a way that doesn't imply you want her to take the lead, by all means, say it.
But if that is your way of saying "I'll do whatever you want to do, just let me know what that is", then do not say it.
Instead, focus on the end game. When you meet a girl and it comes time to close, say "let's get out of here" or "have a drink with me tonight" or "Buy me a gelatto this Friday".
If it's time to kiss her, a simple "come here" works.
Specific directions, no justifying. Focus on the end game. It's called leading. Try it.
Happy Thanksgiving to my regular and not-so-regular reader(s).
